Math-science Materials on Flight

Subject: Math-science units about flight

We are looking for well-integrated math-science materials on the 
subject of flight, suitable for use with students in grades 7-9, with 
plenty of entry points for students who range from beginning to very 
advanced. Suggestions?

Hi Kathleen -

If you're looking for Internet materials, check out   

"The Massachusetts Corporation for Educational Telecommunications 
(MCET), funded by NASA and with support from the Federal Aviation 
Administration, offers teachers a chance to hook students on math and 
science through exciting work in aviation. This three-year project 
offers an aviation science curriculum presented via multiple 
technologies: live, interactive video broadcasting; written curriculum 
materials; Internet activities; and videoconferencing. Teachers may 
choose to participate in the broadcasts, Internet activities, and 
videoconferencing, or any combination of these."

Specifically relevant to your question is project "Takeoff" which you 
can find out about from the above URL.

Maybe other math doctors will have more information for you.  :-)

Hi Kathleen! 

I think you'll find quite a bit if you search the Eisenhower 
National Clearinghouse at   .  Best luck and let us know 
if you need more help!
